The Orioles today announced that they have added four players to their roster with the conclusion of the minor league season. Those players will join the team for the Orioles’ game at Tampa Bay tonight.
SS Luis Hernandez and INF Brandon Fahey were each recalled for their second stint with the Orioles this season. Hernandez appeared in 13 games for the Orioles, batting .333 (12-36).

To make room for Cabrera on the 40-man roster, RHP Chris Ray was transferred to the 60-day disabled list.
The Orioles also announced that Bowie coach Moe Hill will be added to the coaching staff when the team returns home on Thursday. Hill completed his 5th season in the organization and his 2nd with the Baysox.
